550 HISTORY DEl'T. OF MASS., G.A.R.

The reports show that the Uepartmeut of Massachusetts is
in better condition than ever before, and in no respect has it fallen
behind daring the year just elapsed.

A year ago I had the honor of recommending that something
be done to improve the " Form of Inspection." By vote of the
Encampment the matter was referred to the Council of Adminis-
tration. At the first meeting a committee was appointed to draft
a new form. This was done and subsequently adopted by the
Council and recommended to the National Encampment. This
form was exemplified by Post 68 of Dorchester, in the presence
of the Department aides and some of the delegates, in order that
its workings might be observed. The National Encampment,
upon recommendation of the Inspector-General, adopted it with-
out a change, and it is thought that its availability and practica-
bility will be clearly demonstrated in the future, and whatever
honor comes from it will be credited to our own Department.

The form of installation is incorrect and incomplete, and I wish
something might be done to improve it, especially as the Ritual
has been taken under consideration. Thus uniformity may be
secured without any detriment to the essential parts or taking
awav the beauty and simplicity.

I gladly take this opportunity to thank the Assistant Inspec-
tors for their faithfulness and efficiency, and for the zeal which
they have shown in the performance of their duties. When all
have done so well, it would be unjust to specify, for all have
been prompt as well as faithful in execution of the work assigned
them, and the reports received show they spared no pains to
thoroughly instruct and encourage the Posts which they visited.

To the comrades of the Council 1 would return thanks for
the kindness shown during the year. The friendships formed will
not soon be forgotten. I recall with great pleasure the pleasant
relations between us.

For the many favors received at your hands I return my
heartfelt thanks. As the years have passed I trust that our
fraternit}' has grown so strong that nothing can disturb it, but it
shall continue while life lasts.

I congratulate our Commander upon the close of a very suc-
cessful year of service, and upon the fact that he leaves the posi-
tion amid the sincere regrets of his comrades. I shall look back
with pleasure to the visits which it has been my privilege to make
with laim in various sections of the State. Pleasant were they at
the time they occurred, and the memories are delightful to recall.
Nor shall I forget the kindness he has uniformly shown to all his
comrades, even those of us who are cranks.

In conclusion. I hope that the coming years will cement our
bond of comradeship so strong that no disturbing element shall
ever be allowed to disturb our much loved Order.

I have the honor to be yours in F., C. and L.,

B. READ WALES, Inspector.



TWENTY-SECOND ANNIAL ENCAMTMENT. 551



RErORT OF JUDGE ADVOCATE.

Office of Judge Advocate,
10 Tremont Street, Boston, Feb. 8, 1888.

To Alfred C. Monroe, Assistant Acljutcmt-Ge)ieral.

Comrade : In compliance with the Rules and Regulations, T
submit the following report of the operations of m}' Department
for the past year: —

I have accompanied the Department Commander in ofllcial
visits to nineteen Posts in different parts of the State, and
at the opening of three fairs. In all these visits we were greeted
by the comrades with a true veterans' welcome, and it was most
gratifying to find that the Grand Army in Massachusetts was in
such a flourishing condition.

I have attended three hearings on application for charters for
new Posts in Pittsfield and New Bedford, examined the proceedings
and findings in six cases of courts-martial, attended all the meetings
of the Council of Administration, and rendered many verbal and
thirteen written opinions, on questions submitted to me on various
subjects arising in Posts appertaining to Grand Army law.

There is one subject that I feel it my duty to particularly
refer to, inasmuch as my opinion has frequently been sought
thereon, "The position Posts ought to take in regard to raising
money for charitable purposes by games of chance, such as lot-
teries, etc." There should be no doubt as to the position they
ought to take, as raising money by games of chance of any kind
is contrary to the law of this Commonwealth. The Legislature of
Massachusetts refused to pass a bill to exempt Grand Army Posts
from the operation of that Ian-.

The law of the State is supreme as regards regulating the
conduct of all persons living within its territorial limits, and all
societies and organizations existing within the State are subject
to its laws, and no member thereof has au}^ right to violate those
laws, though the object sought to be attained, that of raising
money to assist needy comrades and the widows and or))haus of those
who have fallen is a most worthy one. It is, therefore, the dut}"
of members of the Grand Army, as loyal citizens, to conscientiously
obey the laws and to aid in maintaining them if necessary.

In closing my year's service I wish to congratulate Com-
mander Nash upon his success in guiding the Department of
^lassachusetts safely through a year that has been an eventful
one in the history of the Grand Army of the Republic ; also to
extend to him and the members of his Staff my sincere thanks for
the many courtesies received and friendship nu\uifested during
my official term. Yours in F., C. & L.,

JOHN A.KEEFE,

Judge Advocate.



HISTORY DEPT. OF MASS., G.A.R.



REPORT OF COUNCIL OF ADMINISTRATION.

Boston, Feb. 1, 1888.

Commavder : In submitting the report of the doings of the
Council of Administration for the year to you, and through you
to the Department Convention, we find but little of importance to
present.

The duties devolving upon the Council have been prompth'
and faithfully discharged. Four regular and one special^neetings
have been held, at whicli the various questions referred to the
Council by the last Department Convention were fully considered,
with the following results : —

At the meeting, held March 9, the matter of a new form of
inspection was discussed, and a committee appointed to prepare
such form. This committee reported in print at the meeting of
April 27, and their report was unanimously adopted. The benefi-
cent effects of the doings of this committee are seen in the
increased interest in, and effectiveness of, the inspections through-
out the Department. The accepted form was presented at the
National Encampment at St. Louis, and we point with pride to
the fact that it was unanimously adopted for use by the Order.

The matter of holding the Annual Encampment in February,
and convening same at 2 o'clock p.m. on the first day, has been
favorably considered, and the recommendations adopted by the
Council.

It was deemed inexpedient to obtain a larger hall for the hold-
ing of the banquet, and it will be held in the old historic spot, Faneuil
Hall, at the close of the Convention, it being thought that the inter-
ests of the Department would be best served by first completing
the business of the Convention before enjoying any festivities.

The books of the Assistant Adjutant-General and Assistant
Quartermaster-General have been carefully audited, and the
special committee appointed for that purpose report books,
vouchers, funds and supplies all in proper form and correctly kept.
To you. Commander, we desire to express our high apprecia-
tion of the faithfulness with which you have performed the ardu-
ous duties of the year now closing.

To the Assistant Adjutant-General we return our sincere
thanks for the very many courtesies received, and for the devo-
tion and zeal with which the duties of his position have ever been
performed. Fraternally,

GEO. L GOODALE,
WM. A. PRESCOTT.

TWKNTV-SECOND ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT. 553

REPORT OF MEDICAL DIRECTOR.

Boston, Feb. 1, 1888.
A. C. MoNKOE, Assistant Adjutant-General :

Comrade : I have the houor to report tluit during the past year
I have made sixty examinations* of veterans making appHeation for
pension or increase, and made fifty aflidavits in such cases.

Have visited, with the Department Commander, many Posts
holding fairs, camp-fires, dedicating G.A.R. halls, etc. I much
regret that on account of business I have been unable to devote
more time to such pleasant, and to me ver}^ interesting occasions.
Have attended all but one of the regular meetings of the Conned
of Administration.

I find many comrades afllicted with disease or its sequence,
contracted while in the service from '61 to '(!.). The most com-
mon are from gunshot wounds or their effects, chills and fevers,
rheumatism, rupture, varicose veins and paralysis.

I would suggest to phj'siciaus, wben writing certificates of
death of veterans, that when the soldier dies of disease or the
result of disease for which he was pensioned, care should be exer-
cised in writing cause of death so that the pension may continue
to the widow without delay.

There are few, if any, less than forty years of age in our
ranks. As mortality or death-rate just about doubles between
forty and fifty, and again between fifty and sixty years of age,
twenty-five 3'ears hence there will be few left that took an honor-
able part in one of the most gigantic civil wars the world has ever
known. Fortunate and I trust happy, will be the lot of the last
survivors.

I have the honor to be yours in F. C. & L.,

J. B CHERRY,
Ifedical Director.



REPORT OF DEPARTMENT CHAPLAIN.

Headquarters Dept. of Mass., G.A.R.
Jan. 30, 1888.

Alfred C. Monroe, Assistant Adj utant-Oenej-aL

Comrade: I have the honor to submit my report as Chaplain.
So far as my crowded time permitted, I responded to the calls of
the Department Commander, and went with him and his Staff to
the always interesting occasions of the various Posts. It was
understood when I assumed this chaplaincy that I could do little
of this work. I regret for my own sake that I have not met the
comrades oftener at their gatherings-



554 HISTORY DEPT. OF MASS., G.A.K.

No death has occurred in the active executive membership of
our bod}" ; but we still keenly mourn the loss of Past Department
Commander George H. Patch, a man who was ever active for the
cause, in ottice or out ; a comrade of great heart, tireless zeal,
deep loyalty, strong sense, and endeared to the rank and file of
our Order. He still lives for us in. his example and the inspira-
tion of his memory. I need not extend my reference to him since
he will be justly described and fitly remembered in the Com-
mander's address.

I would record here the loss from the veterans this past
year of tw-o brave characters. General Underwood and General
Attwood ; both of them lustrous types of the American volunteer ;
both noble illustrations of the citizen soldier. To the latter
especially is the G.A.R. indebted for labors many in its behalf.
He believed in the organization thoroughl}'.

Permit me to express mj' thanks to my associate officers for
the kindly feeling they have continually shown to me, and to the
comrades I have met for their uniform courtesj^ and good-will.
A chaplain is looked upon theoreticallj' as a traditional affix to a
staff; and in military matters he may be ornamental, but neither
necessary nor useful. I am afraid there is a great deal of truth
in this popular estimate. But 1 think there is a place for such a
person if he will remember that he is first, last, and always a man
and a comrade.

I desire to express my confidence in the Order, and my
increased sense of its value, the more I see of its life and work-
ings. There are many not of us who ought to be in our ranks.
Let us so conduct our affairs that we may steadily hold the sym-
pathy of the public and gain fresh additions to our rolls.
Most sincerely in F., C. & L.,

EDWARD A. HORTON,

Chaplain.
